I’ve been a little unfocused this past week. Apathetic. Frustrated. Angry. Happy. All at varying points over the past seven days. Sure, I’m sure I’ve seemed pretty happy – heck, I know I was happy when I wrote about buying new clothes. It comes and goes.

That’s not something I wanted to see last night, and it’s not something I particularly wanted to blog about today. However, I’m aware that we all gain a little weight from time to time. I won’t pretend I was perfect this week, because I know I wasn’t.
Here are the likely reasons why I gained this week:
- Snacking – I did a whole lot of snacking over the past week, straight out of the bag snacking on salty snacks like chex mix and peanuts.
- Working out – Yeah, not a whole heck of a lot of that.
- Food Tracking and Eating Out – I ate out at a couple of places I don’t usually, and as such have no planned meals, then went a little crazy at said places.
These I’ll call the “Probable Top Three Reasons Why I Gained” and I could probably think of twenty more, but I’m not gonna. I refuse to beat myself up over this, it was slip, not a fall, and I recognized the behavior before it could get worse. Today I forgive myself for getting lax in my program and am already back on track.
Progress on this week’s goal to workout five times:
Tuesday: 40 minutes belly dance, 15 minutes pilates
Wednesday: Day off. (I intended to do the 30 Day Shred, but life got in the way.)
Thursday: Nothing yet, 30 Day Shred planned.
I’ll leave this one a little short since I’ve got a longer post coming later today.
